    Hi everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself and say what a great site this is. So much information here it is incredible! As a newbie to the plowing world, it is great to have all these resources to pull from. I hope after some time I will be able to return the same.

    My son Jason, is the one who will actually be doing the plowing, I just own the truck. He is 21 and is getting his own business started and this is one way I can help him out. We are running a 98 GMC Sierra 1500 Z71 with a 7 ½’ Minute Mount 2 Fisher plow. It’s a regular cab with a short bed. We got the plow on last week and all the insurance requirements in place just in time for the storm we had last weekend. Jason said the truck performed great. He really likes the MM2 plow compared to the others he was using on his boss’s rigs. He likes the compact size of the truck also. He said it makes it very maneuverable in tight places. He also liked the height of the plow where he was able to stack the snow higher than normal. Anyway, I’m rambling, just wanted to say hi.

    Wow! What a great welcome guys! Thanks. It looks like Jason will be out again tomorrow. I’m getting jealous now.

    I just had to post the pic of the “first” truck.

    Hi Dad, just wanted to let you know that the truck is running really well right now. I'm praying for snow every day:D . I do think that the truck performs extremely well considering its size. good luck to you
